We went strawberry picking this morning and came away with 19 pounds of strawberries. I'm taking little break from cleaning, cutting and bagging them.
Don't they look yummy?
These local, sweet berries cost us $1 per lb. The sour, packaged strawberries in the grocery stores are on sale this week for $2.50 per lb. I took MB and K to help me, and it only took us about 30 minutes to pick this many berries.
We will freeze most of them to eat later in the year, make ice cream, smoothies. Tonight's dessert is probably the best of all: fresh strawberries & whip cream.
